What the USA team does NOT need is a "buddy" captain like Fred Couples. He'd pick Woods whether his play warranted it or not. Tom Watson would be the perfect choice.

More fire in his belly re this competition than the rest put together. He'd do it if he was asked!

Do the right thing, PGA...Larry Nelson.

I agree with Chuck from Charlottesville. Watson would be a great choice, plus Palmer never won a PGA and it didn't stop him from being a great Captain!

Who was the joker who included Colin Montgomerie in the poll?!
Seriously -- Toms has this in his future, so give it time; Watson would be amazing, Nelson is deserving and capable; Freddie is better suited to the more laid-back President's Cup atmosphere -- and too buddy-buddy with TW to sit him when required; Fury is another future US RC skipper -- give it a few years; Jeff who?

Tom Watson's captaincy would be a powerful antidote to any American player who, too young or uninformed to understand Ryder Cup history, finds himself intimidated by the performance of more recent European teams. Since Watson announced his willingness to serve, it'd be almost foolhardy to pass up the opportunity, in my opinion. The fact that Watson never won a PGA Championship shouldn't matter, but probably does to PGA leadership, who aren't known for their quality decision making. Still, I'm an optimist.
